. they keep coming to the same conclusion. there is about 6% of u.s. adolescents that are clinically depressed. that's not just sad. it's in a deep state that need help of one type or another. whether it's counseling or drugs or whatever. they need some help. they're relatively easy to identify. and you can do it in a simple screening process. for very little money. we could have every kid when you get your high school physical, you also have to get checked out, or periodically before graduation. because the thing is, most depressives, kids want to -- they want help. and they will tell adults. usually the two adults they will not tell are their mom and their dad. and that's actually part of the screening protocol is that parents can't be in the room, because they will usually tell a teacher or a counselor or a family doctor. they will tell an adult, but they hide it from their parents because they're embarrassed, ashamed, all sorts of different reasons. so the parents are often blind to it because the child is sort of blocking their view. so parents have difficulty. but yeah, we can do so much

, the syrian regime has turned increasingly desperate. u.s. officials tell nbc news the syrian military loaded the precursor chemicals for sarn nerve gas into aerial bombs. that could be dropped from dozens of syrian fighter bombers. this week u.s. intelligence detected a flurry of activity at chemical weapons sites like this one. while u.s. officials confirm the precursor chemicals are loaded, they must still be mixed together to create the deadly sarin gas. the development shook the world. president obama and secretary of state hillary clinton issued strong warnings to syria's president assad that there would be serious consequences if he used chemical weapons. >> it's the point of no return. they're going to lose any sort of backing that they had from the chinese and russians in terms of blocking the u.n. vote. and it's my -- it's a suicide move. >> reporter: iraq's saddam hussein killed 5,000 kurds with a sarin gas attack in 1988. jim miklaszewski, nbc news, pentagon. >>> back here at home, fiscal cliff negotiations in washington are still up in the air. most lawmakers have gone home for a

business correspondent for "u.s. news & world report." i want to ask you about the tax increase if there is no deal and tax rates rise, when would workers begin to see that reflekr reflected in their paychecks? when does the pain start? >> this is not one tax hike. this is about nine different sets of taxes. and the one that would go up right away is the payroll tax. that was cut temporarily in 2 009, cut by two percentage points and will go back up by two percentage points and that would come out of workers' paychecks right off the bat. it would add up to something like $60, $70 a month for the typical worker. we hear about all the tax rates that are going up, that actually wouldn't involve money that is in people's pockets until they actually pay their taxes or do their tax returns the following year. because that's when they would have to calculate the amount they owe and whether they paid enough taxes in 2013. so the good and bad news about that is that is not going to affect people right away, but that also means they can put that one off for a long time and we could go --
